The Buffalo Sabres suffered a tough 2-1 overtime loss to the Calgary Flames Tuesday night, but things are looking up after the Sabres finished with their best record in October since 2011. On this edtion of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks with Nick Lippa about the team's recent success, which includes strong goaltending performances from Carter Hutton and Linus Ullmark. The Amerks are a "powerhouse" according to Hoppe. So when will some of that talent make their way to Buffalo? Also, Jason Pominville will be playing his 1,000 career game in the NHL Thursday against the Ottawa Senators.
